STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCe

Domestic violence, domestic abuse, physical or psychological abuse, are the type of violence that for the most part, is suffered by a partner, or a cohabitant. Domestic violence is committed by a person close to you. A person you trust and it can take place in all types of relationships. Domestic violence involves violence against children, teenagers, parents, women, man, LGBTI, all genders, and elderly. It takes multiple forms, including physical, emotional, economic, religious, reproductive, gender related, sexual abuse, psychological abuse, immigration status, social status, and so on. Domestic violence ranges from passive-subtle, almost “unintentional” to coercive forms of violence, including marital/partnership rape, violent physical abuse, verbal abuse, name calling, derogatory treatment, and more. Domestic violence also involves any cohabitating and non-cohabitating person with a sentimental emotional attachment to you.

Around the world, 90 percent of domestic violence cases are against women.

It does not matter where you are, domestic violence is not justifiable and IT IS NEVER YOUR FAULT.

Domestic violence is among the most underreported crimes worldwide due to social stigmas and those who survive it, for the most part, do not get recognized for its merits and surviving skills. We want to hear your story. Your surviving skills can help another person on a similar situation.
